Finding Friends with Siri

I use Find My Friends regularly. It’s a great way to see when my wife will be home so I can have dinner ready and not bug her. With iOS 7 you can now1 ask Siri to locate someone linked with Find My Friends. If you have your relationship set for your spouse, just ask Siri “Where’s my wife”.

Siri will dutifully return a map showing their current location. Tapping the pin will open Find My Friends.

This feature is cool, but it also made me disable Siri access from the lock screen. Sometimes what is technically impressive is logically frightening.

  1. Hell, this could be an iOS6 feature I never tried before. Who still runs that ancient OS? ↩︎
